    Default dive curve for 20 back 2oz weight

    can anyone tell me the depth i would reach running a deep walleye bandit 20 ft back with a 2oz snap weight then ran 70 ft back from there. i can't seem to find it. also what it would be for 80 back maybe 60 back so on so on.

    thanks in advance

    Nobody will be able to accurately give you that depth without knowing the trolling speed to go along with those leads.

    Well that's pretty accurate lol. With bandits I've been trying to stay around 2.5 2.7 with 30 lb braid. No leaders just pulling straight off the back.

    Like mentioned, weight depths are driven by speed. Also if you are going across/with/into the currents out in the lake. That changes the diving depth. You can start with this. But it is only a reference/starting point.

    I can only hope I have earned the freedom that has been given me.

    20 back on a bandit by the chart is about 7 ft. At about 2.0 mph, 2oz 60 back is about 17, 70 back is about 19, 80 back is about 21.

    So about 24,26 28 at 2.0 mph.......if your doing 2.5 to 2.7 it will be shallower weights are greatly effect by speed. The 2 Oz at 1.0 60 back will get about 30ft, at 1.5 it is about 19, at 2.0 it is about 17. So even going over waves will cause these depths to go up and down, same as around corners.

    If you are running speeds 2.5-2.7 give this site a try. Most other weight dive curves stop at 2.0 mph and that is a big difference compared to 2.7 mph. Just take your crankbait depth from its dive curve and add that depth to the depth you get from this dive curve at your 60, 70, and 80 leads. Just remember this just gets you a ballpark number, definitely not an exact depth. When I run weight I make sure to make a lot of turns.

    Easy, to run the depth without running 80-120 ft of line.
